Episode 14: Show Notes

Today we're talking with my favorite student of all time. And she's also my daughter! 

In this interview, you'll meet Megan Saia, a California attorney who passed the bar exam on her first try after graduating from law school at the University of Virginia. 

Megan describes the process of the bar exam with the unique insight of someone who grew up in the bar review, took the course, passed the exam, worked with Celebration Bar Review as an editor and then a special mentor for repeat California Bar Takers. 

Her "360 degree" view of the exam is something you won't want to miss!

Episode 13: Show Notes

There are no shortages of gimmicks and fads when it comes to studying for the bar exam. The problem is... most of them are more hype than reality. In today's episode we'll look at several of the persistent ways bar takers try to beat the system and why that strategy usually fails.

Today's message is from my series "Top 10 Bar Exam Myths" and in this Episode, I talk about Myth #6: "Fool Me Once!" In upcoming episodes I'll be counting up through all ten myths that destroy productivity and keep bar takers from passing the exam.

Episode 12: Show Notes

What happens when a father and son both take the Florida Bar Exam - 10 years apart? For Herman and Alex Tarnow it was a chance to compare and connect over the shared experience. In today's episode, they share with Jackson what it was like to study and pass the Florida bar using Celebration Bar Review.

You'll hear how Herman took the Florida Bar Exam as an attorney already licensed in NY and CT and Alex took the exam out of law school. Though their backgrounds were quite different, they both succeeded on the exam and today they practice matrimonial law together at www.tarnowlawfirm.com in Naples FL.
